Calling all Canadian Film Makers!!!!
Are you out there? Are you listening?
Oh hi, there you are! How is it going? No, I didn’t just call you to say hello, I wanted to tell you something. What was it? Well, if you hold on one second, I’m just waiting for everyone to get here…..
Everyone here? Okay. Here we go:
CBC Radio Canada has a new competition made just for all you talented film makers out there. It’s called Roots and you can submit a short film or multimedia about your personal history or that of your family! They can be in any style: avant-garde, sitcom or short docs! They can even be an animated short, photo essay or anything else that shows the story in a visual form.
Need a story: How about the time I was drunk in the Glendon Campus residence in Toronto and my “friends” shaved my head for the first time in the bathroom. Boy, was that a confusing morning. Avant-Garde? Check. Original? Check. What more could you want? I’ll even act in it!
The winners will share nearly $13,000 in prizes and their names will be disclosed online in the spring of 2010. RCIâ€™s jury will select 8 winners, 4 in French and 4 in English and web surfers will also have a chance to vote for their favorite production in the â€œshort filmâ€ and multimedia categories, at www.rcinet.ca/roots
I’m telling you, my bathroom story is golden.
Good luck filmakers!
